Infographic: Charting the offensive production of BYU, Utah and USU since 2000

Published: Tuesday, Aug. 20 2013 1:40 p.m. MDT

Following the tremendous feedback the Deseret News received for last week's infographic charting BYU, Utah and USU's defensive rankings from 1999-2012, we follow it up this week with an expanded look at how BYU, Utah and USU's offenses have fared since the year 2000.

We took a look back at three statistics — national total offensive ranking, yards per game and touchdowns per season — and charted them. We also did something new for yards per game and touchdowns — we calculated each team's average and put them in the charts as well. Production for the overall No. 1 team's offense can also be seen in this chart.

As with last week, take note! The values for rankings in the first chart are negative. A mark higher in the chart is indicative of a better offensive ranking.

As to whether BYU, Utah or USU was best, however, in any of these years is entirely up for debate.
